You've Got A Monthly Fee Increase

from the pay-more-now dept

Everyone and his brother (and sister!) are covering this one this morning, but after months of denial, AOL Time Warner has admitted that yes, indeed, they’re raising their monthly fees by $1.95. If the reaction to their last rate hike (3 years ago) is any indication, most people won’t care, and AOL Time Warner will now make quite a bit more money. Of course, the people who should really be pissed are other internet content providers who are thinking about charging for access to their content – as they just lost $2/month of “disposable internet allowances” that they could have captured.
